Chicago’s own, YP, physically and metaphorically towers above Hip-Hop’s emerging rappers. Regardless of his domineering 6’6″ physique, the self-professed green aficionado, BackWood Jones, possesses a THC-enhanced, relaxed confidence, which allows his innate lyrical integrity to be easily distinguished. As one of Hip-Hop’s true MC’s his presence works to challenge these fun-sized caricatures who mock actual artists.
During the release party of his magnum opus, Untitled, while in New York City at the iconic Quad Studios, AllHipHop chopped it up with the “Let Us Pray” lyricist. Check out the concise clip, to see why YP believes people should listen to his music, and how it motivates people to live life on their terms.
